The Haredi boys in the picture have built a snowman in front of the Kotel in Jerusalem. He doesn’t have eyes of coal and a carrot for a nose, but he certainly wears a nice, yeshivish hat. Isn’t there a prohibition on putting a tzelem-idol in the Temple? I hope it’s not a new Chassidic […]

That’s the title for this image, of a U.S. Army gun crew fire illumination rounds at Forward Operating Base Hadrian. Intensive Training, indeed. The 1st Section Bravo Battery 1-9 Field Artillery from Fort Stewart Ga., have been conducting intensive training and fire missions to support operations in Uruzgan province, Afghanistan. The gunners, based out of […]

I know, you guys in the Tri-State Area probably eat pictures like this one for breakfast – a tree that was felled by a storm and destroyed someone’s car. But for us here, in Israel, this is a big deal. It doesn’t take a whole lot to flood us – we’re a very small country. […]

A lightning is a massive electrostatic discharge caused by unbalanced electric charge in the atmosphere, either inside clouds, cloud to cloud or cloud to ground, accompanied by the loud sound of thunder. The computer of a friend of mine who lives in Jerusalem was once fried by a lightning storm and it took him about […]

A Turkish hacker whose Facebook page identifies him as Hulusi Semih Karaca has hacked the website of the Ramat Gan Safari. A Jewish Press reporter who went to the Safari website in search of material on the passing, last year, of the 17-year old giraffe Dubla, found the hacked page instead. Shortly after entering the […]

Thousands of Chasidim attend the wedding of the great-grandson of the Sanzer Rebbe in Netanya, January 02, 2012. The Sanz Chasidic dynasty was founded by Rabbi Chaim Halberstam (1793–1876) who served as the Rabbi of Nowy Sącz (Sanz, or Tsanz inYiddish). Reb Chayim was known as a man in whose pocket a penny never got […]

This is former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, a man who made the highest office in the land the most profitable in history, who squeaked by several convictions of embezzlement and dishonor, frankly, because of an inept prosecution and a lineup of witnesses who were easily as shady as the PM’s actions. Former Prime Minister Ehud […]

For some reason, in Israel they named the secular-sounding New Year’s Eve after the Catholic St. Sylvester. According to legend, Pope Sylvester I healed the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great from leprosy and then baptized him. Two valuable things on New Year’s Eve… The tradition is German, I think. Every year, on Sylvester night, Berlin […]

Sometimes propaganda is so outlandish, it crumbles under its own weight. A case in point: these three elderly ladies walking away from the Shabbaton that was so crazily disrupted by violent, cursing, nasty security forces, hell bent on sanctifying the tenets of the 2-state (“final”) solution at the Oz Etzion outpost this weekend. The following […]

The Rakeffet (cyclamen) flowers include 23 species of perennials growing from tubers, native to Europe and the Mediterranean Basin east to Iran, with one species in Somalia. Of all the species I saw on cyclamen.org, the one most common in Israel is the one I like the most. It looks frail and intangible, vulnerable, withdrawn. […]

On Thursday, Israel’s High Court reviewed the appeal by Arab MK Hanin Zoabi (National Democratic Assembly) of the Knesset Elections Committee’s decision to disqualify her candidacy. Zoabi, a vociferous anti Israeli MK, has made many enemies (many more enemies?) in 2010, when she sailed on board the Mavi Marmara, part of the flotilla that attempted […]

You know what’s the back story here, right? The father (pictured pushing the baby carriage) and the mother (walking next to him) had no idea in the world about the cultural significance of the cheap Purim suits they found at the store for their brood (although, you’ll notice, one of the girls insisted on Queen […]

We’ve been having a whole lot of weather this winter. The Kinneret is rising at an unbelievable rate and may reach its highest point in decades this winter. Over here, in Netanya, we’ve experienced some gales at the beachfront, coupled with lightening storms, that almost blew us off our feet. In fact, legend has it […]

We’ve been having bucketloads of rain here, in Israel, this winter, so much so that these soaking-wet goats, belonging to Kibbutz Tzova in the Judean Hills, on the outskirts of Jerusalem, had to be herded into an overnight shelter. It’s a little like looking at a bunch of wool sweaters that were left out in […]

This is Zehava Gal-On, leader of the left-wing Meretz party, speaking to students at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, on Tuesday, December 18, 2012. Meretz is a relatively small party, with three MKs in the current Knesset, which could—according to some polls—increase its size to five MKs. Back in the early 1990s, when it had […]

A general view of Ramat Shlomo, on December 18 2012, when it was decided that 1,500 new homes will be built. The world, including the U.S. and the E.U. is shocked, because Israel is daring to build homes east of the armistice line of 1949. Israel suggests that the 1949 line was erased in 1967, […]

I watched that terrifying video showing a 12-year-old Syrian child beheading two Army officers. And maybe the most terrifying part about it was that I clicked to the clip while unwrapping a piece of sugar free gum (an ex-smoker, I chew a lot at work). Then I was watching the boy bringing a sword down […]
